I can't remember the last time I've posted here, but I wanted to share some very sad news from the History Department. This morning, many recent history alumni received an email from Cynthia Paces. Here is the text of that email:
Sadly, I am trying to reach you to convey very difficult news. Professor Alan Dawley died suddenly while vacationing with his wife in Mexico. The department is grieving for this amazing scholar and teacher, who worked closely with many of you.
I want you to know that Professor Gross, myself, or any department member is available to speak with you about our community's profound loss. When I have details of funeral or memorial service arrangments, I will let you know.
Please let your friends who were not in this class know--we are trying to reach as many alums as possible.
Please help spread this message to has many history alumni as you can. We all knew Dr. Dawley, so this is very sad news for us indeed.
